Recently it came to the attention of administration that there is a fundraising phone call claiming that Independence High School is raising funds for our Athletics Program.  The phone number being used is 1.888.501.9227.  This is not a legitimate effort on our part.  While the scammers may be targeting businesses, please do not give any money or private information to the caller.  If you do get a call, please contact administration at 1.408.928.9500 or send Liz Daniell an email with as much information as you can provide and she will forward it along.

Thank you so much!
